Passport '88 - Sheet of Tickets

While not as exciting as an uncut sheet of dollar bills, this uncut sheet of Disneyland tickets is still fun and pretty rare. These “Passport ‘88” tickets were in celebration of Mickey’s 60th. Valid thru August 21, 1988, I’ve never seen an actual ticket like these, I wonder if they were ever used?

These tickets are on thick paper stock with nice detailed print work and they are BIG, each ticket measures 4 by 9 inches. The entire sheet itself is HUGE! The “void if detached” section doesn’t have its perforation punched thru yet.

The basic stuff is on the back. Oh yeah, this is a Child ticket.

**UPDATE** This just in from Katellagate, "Judging from the cut guides at the margins, the finished tickets were supposed to look like"... this:

Cool sheet of unused tix! Hey Mickey, what's with the tux and tennis shoes? Must have been an 80's thing.

Aw! Mickey looks adorable! I love his little outfit! =)

Huh, I always thought that these tickets were made in a long strip rather than a big sheet. Did somebody have to tear each one of these off of the sheet individually??

Major: the technique is called Full Bleed printing that permits a color to reach the edge of the paper without a white border. The tickets are "gang printed" on a sheet as you see here, then cut into individual tickets that are slightly smaller than the printed area. Perforations would have been added at that time to detach the stub.

Nice find. Thanks for the look - and thanks, Katella, for the info on the process.
